For personal reasons I have to withdraw from this board for a while.
I apologise to the community but you will have to find another judge - or whatever you decide on.

Sorry,
Duncan

Thank you Graham (and Anniet).
With the POV right in the six foot way I actually thought at first it was a cab's eye view.
Anyway, I just got home and it's 01:20 here - I'll look for something tomorrow.

Happy New Year. What is the name for the leather loop that comes with a leather belt so you can tuck in the loose end? I need to buy replacements separately and cannot figure out the search term(s).

I have not bought sugar in years.

Maybe not in a bag. But sugar is in almost everything we eat or drink.


True. I do eat fruit which has sugar and even most veggies have sugar. But I do avoid all grains and any product with processed sugar (by whatever name).


But surely the fruit sugar is fructose which was part of our "original" diet, whereas junk sugar is sucrose, which wasn't?

Winning while now only drawing 245W from the wall (230v).

245W is 245W whatever the voltage; but I'm still jealous. It's winter here and I can't get mine below about 900W even tho the actual heating is natural gas. I don't think the five PVRs and four laptops permanently connected help the situation. And the CH water pump pulls nearly 200W when running. At least the freezer in the external garage doesn't have a lot to do this time of year.

Ok here we go...I didn't exactly discount the HP references but I'm not a fan and sadly may have missed some of the humour.

The honorable mentions go to
Admiral Gloval [for replicating the original caption] "This is why women live longer than men."
anniet [thinking outside the box] "I'm not sure that new pool cleaning service knows what they're doing..."
Carlos [thinking outside the box] "Attempt at creating a new water sport"
Sirius B [first mention of Christmas I've seen on the board] "It's Xmas you fool, not Halloween"

And the winners are...
#3 Grant Nelson "Flying off the handle."
#2 rob smith "Don't look up"
#1 JumpinJohnny "I hope this broom handle between my legs doesn't break my sunglasses when I hit...

Thank you all for participating, and a PM will be sent shortly

Edit: apologies to the last two posters whose efforts crossed my deliberations.
